This was a very nice hotel and we enjoyed our stay. It is in walking distance of restaurants and coffee shops. The hotel was very clean. The front desk staff was very friendly. Check-in was very fast. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Hotel's Favourite
I booked this hotel somewhat last minute while looking for a neighborhood to stay in Chicago, not downtown. This was an amazing hotel, it was beautiful and my experience with all staff was incredible. They were friendly and helpful above and beyond my expectations. I was nervous to stay at a hotel during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the hotel explained the measures they had taken and I felt comfortable throughout. I cannot wait to come back, hopefully post-pandemic, to truly take advantage of all the hotel has to offer.

First impression, from the person at the door who greeted us, Sam, to the front desk everyone working at the hotel was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and treated us with care. The hotel restaurant is fantastic, not only do they have great food, but the service was impeccable. All of the servers from Victor, to Karin, to Alexander, all of them were so good to us and treated us with compassion as we were dealing with a difficult medical family situation during our stay. Lastly, the finishes at the hotel are amazing! Whoever designed this hotel knew what they were doing. Love the geometric designs, the beautiful local art work, and our room was not only comfortable, including extremely comfortable beds but also really fun design.

Does not get much better than the SOPHY Hotel in Hyde Park, IL! Starting with Sam the ambassador who does it all and genuinely cares about each and every guest to Macks and the two other very nice ladies that I am forgetting their name right now. We stayed there for the first time due to a family emergency that extended to over a week long stay. While the outcome of our beloved sister is not what we hoped, our home base of the SOPHY was one of the best travel experiences we have had in the last 30 years! It is a newer hotel that has cool finishes, great rooms, beds, and bathrooms/showers. Mesler, the onsite restaurant was amazing and the staff there in particular Victor, was like being with family. Parking is the only thing that is not great but that is a very small price to pay for one of the best values in south Chicago area. We would sometimes pay 2-3 times more downtown Chicago and not get what we did at the SOPHY! Thank you SOPHY for making what was a bitter trip very Sweet:) Side note, try Valois cafeteria style restaurant for breakfast down the street!

Room was great! It was spacious, clean and modern. So relaxing. Even had a record player and records. The location is where we needed to support a family member being treated for cancer at University of Chicago. I can not say enough about the amazing staff.
